opposite windows

of course the swan
snatches all the grace from our words.
locked in a car
parked
against the walkway,
and staring at dull, black waves as
seaweed colonises sand

the clock winds
down another lunch break
and we’re looking
out opposite windows

mine frames a boy with an ice-cream,
and he’s really happy with it
but his brother watches on
as if missing something.

    • Wow! Win98 – that’s awesome! I had windows ME for quite a few years at one stage. Never had a problem with it.

      Thanks, Dhyan – I like the way windows can have that classic ‘view from either side’
